Building Statistical Thinking with Social Justice Investigations and Social Science Data

This poster provides an overview of the Strengthening Data Literacy across the Curriculum (SDLC) project, which is developing and studying curriculum modules for non-AP high school statistics classes to promote interest and skills in statistical thinking and data science among diverse high school populations. This early-stage design and development project aims to engage students with data investigations that focus on issues of social justice, using large-scale socioeconomic data from the U.S. Census Bureau and student-friendly online data visualization tools.

This early-stage design and development project aims to engage students with data investigations that focus on issues of social justice, using large-scale socioeconomic data from the U.S. Census Bureau and student-friendly online data visualization tools. Primary social justice topics are income inequality and immigration in the U.S. This poster was created for the SREE Spring 2020 Conference.

How Do Balance Scales Shape K–2 Students' Understandings of Equations?

This poster shares data from a Grades K–2 cross sectional study that examined how students' thinking about equations and the meaning of the equal sign were shaped by their experiences exploring equations with pan balances and number balances. The study found that these tools afforded students opportunities to reconsider their initial interpretations of equations, connect the idea of a balancing scale to a balancing equation, and notice structure in equations.

The study found that these tools afforded students opportunities to reconsider their initial interpretations of equations, connect the idea of a balancing scale to a balancing equation, and notice structure in equations. In addition, these tools helped reveal student difficulties with the ways in which they interpreted equations and the meaning of the equal sign.
